It has been five months since I attended the iChurch Level 1 course in the beautiful surroundings of Windermere. Arriving at the Windermere Centre I had no experience of how to put a website together and what this would involve … to be honest I was a little fearful but there was no need as I was soon put at my ease.
I found the course relaxed, but informative; a challenge at times, but with help always at hand, and overall a very rewarding experience.
The course represents excellent value for money, especially as it includes full site set-up, domain name, template and hosting alongside the training and full board accommodation with super food. The atmosphere is really friendly and there is time to relax, reflect and meet other people.
The real value of any course is how you implement your learning once you are back home. With friendly on-going support from Windermere and the encouragement of my own congregation and friends I have found building Purley United Reformed Church’s new look website both enjoyable and rewarding. This gives local churches a real opportunity not only to communicate effectively within their own congregation but also to local communities and the wider world (including other churches and organisations).
In short, iChurch Level 1 is an excellent course and comes highly recommended. Anyone who is thinking of engaging in web design for their church need to look no further.
